Fowey Festival of Arts and Literature

May 6, 2016 - May 14, 2016

The Festival is inspired by the famed author Daphne du Maurier, who spent a large part of her life in and around Fowey, where she took inspiration from her surroundings and created a rich literary legacy of titles set in the Cornish landscape.

The Festival continues to include a strand of du Maurier themed events from walks showcasing the inspiration behind the author’s stories to book readings and debates.

The Festival is embedded in the heart of the quintessential Cornish harbour side town of Fowey, with panoramic views over the river, busy with boats, ferries and water taxis, and beyond to the open sea. This year’s line up includes;

  • A.C Grayling
  • John Suchet
  • Sir Vince Cable
  • Robin Ellis
  • Patrick Gale
  • Jonathan Delbridge
  • Katie Fforde
  • Prue Leith
  • Martin Bell
  • Ann Widecombe
